Artist Spencer Tunick has been documenting the live nude figure in public, with photography and video, since 1992. Since 1994 he has organised over 75 temporary site-specific installations in the United States and abroad. Tunick’s installations encompass dozens, hundreds or thousands of volunteers; and his photographs are records of these events. The individuals en masse, without their clothing, grouped together metamorphose into a new shape. The bodies extend into and upon the landscape like a substance. These grouped masses which do not underscore sexuality become abstractions that challenge or reconfigure one’s views of nudity and privacy. The work also refers to the complex issue of presenting art in permanent or temporary public spaces.
About this blogI like to think of this blog as a personal space where business meets pleasure, with a little bit of inspiration on top. A place where I can share my work, thoughts, ideas, insights and serendipitous discoveries on the topics that interest me: creativity, photography, pr & communications, arts & culture, travel, personal development and more.
